Digium, a provider of Asterisk-based IP phone systems, has announced interoperability between Digium's Switchvox IP PBX (News - Alert) and Schmooze Com's Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunking solution, SIPStation.
The certification confirms that Digium’s Switchvox business phone systems now seamlessly work with Schmooze Com's SIPStation, which delivers telephony services using high-speed Internet, eliminating the need for traditional phone services.
Businesses are increasingly turning to VoIP systems to reduce international calling costs. The service is highly beneficial to small and medium businesses as it also delivers several advanced features in an inexpensive manner.
The combined solution will deliver a VoIP solution that is easy to configure, deploy and manage, says Tony Lewis, CEO of Schmooze Com.
"Together, Digium's feature-rich Switchvox (News - Alert) phone system and SIPStation's Unlimited SIP trunks provide an affordable, high-quality VoIP solution that businesses can rapidly deploy, with unlimited local and long distance calling, and no contracts or fuss," said Lewis.
SIPStation services are offered with unlimited SIP trunks, allowing companies to get as many extensions they want. The SIP phones are useful to larger businesses that want to make numerous calls at the same time.
With SIPStation SIP trunks, IP calls are quick and cost effective. In fact, the service allows companies to save 70 percent off of their monthly bill by replacing a legacy TDM telephony trunk with a two-way SIPStation Unlimited SIP Trunk.
Digium, the Asterisk (News - Alert) Company, offers a full-featured unified communications (UC) solution built on its powerful open source communications platform.
Switchvox combines capabilities such as fixed mobile convergence, Salesforce.com and SugarCRM integration, queues, IVRs, and instant messaging. It will transform how businesses operate, making them more efficient and productive, the company said.
"Businesses that choose Switchvox are now assured of full interoperability when they select SIPStation for their IP network," said Leslie Conway (News - Alert), vice president of global marketing for Digium, in a statement.
"SMBs and solution providers want certified solutions that have been thoroughly tested. Formal certification now provides them with a high level of confidence in choosing Digium's (News - Alert) Switchvox and Schmooze Com's SIPStation SIP Trunks as a combined solution for their phone system needs."
